Cambridge Development Initiative: Volunteering Opportunity

Do you want to oversee an international charity whilst still at university? Cambridge Development Initiative (CDI) is a student-led development CIO whose work is based in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. CDI works in collaboration with Kite Dar es Salaam, a parallel organisation made up of students from universities in Dar es Salaam. Each year, around 30 Cambridge students work with their Tanzanian counterparts on designing, implementing and managing development projects. CDI’s projects run throughout the year, during which time our student volunteers - both in the UK and in Tanzania - work to sustainably evaluate and develop the work we do, and look at new opportunities to expand our projects.
